CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a great software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you obtain one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you need to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you're able to order the server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a secure and reliable web hosting service for all of your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the whole server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
